Just trawling through site and noticed the death of Barry Morris. Barry was always a joy to work with at Weyhill having not lost that working touch that so many of the employees lost when they achieved promotion.

Another side of him not many knew about was that he became one of my assistants during my Fireworking career, helping on many displays that we did for Pains Fireworks and Skyfires Fireworks. Barry, with Wally Taylor, was dependable, never flapping, always cool and unflustered. I have many pleasant memories of us working together at Weyhill and away from that environment.

My thought go out to his family who I met several times, but sadly lost touch with when Wehill closed.
